Gaming night with Larry Achiampong and David Blandy
Tuesday 3 November, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Join artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy for a special gaming night session in which the artists will battle it out on the popular Nintendo game Splatoon 2.
Like its predecessor, Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter in which players control characters, known as ‘Inklings’ and ‘Octolings’, and use coloured ink as ammunition. The ink is also used to cover the ground – or any paintable surface – in order to swim or refill ink tanks. ‘Inklings’ and ‘Octolings’ can morph between humanoid, or kid form, where they switch from walking and shooting, into squid form where they can quickly swim through ink of their own colour, and replenish their ink supply, as well as return to full health.
Come along and watch Larry and David play on their consoles, send questions to the artists – or join in for private battles if you have a Nintendo Switch and a copy of the game!
Updates on how to join us will be posted here nearer the time.
